Happy Saturn-day

Got sidetracked this morning by a Russian associate I really like.
I also watched parts of The Whitehouse YouTube channels uploads over the last few days. I stole the official seal png graphic from the actual Whitehouse.gov site. It was a transparent png, but instead of a two color black transparency there was 3 colors and when you save it, its screwy looking like somebody was terrible with the paintbrush and not perfecting the transparency of the graphic, and then its saved as a non transparent image by the browser. This is how they “secure” the seal and keep people from using the original graphic via its web address, and make keeping a copy from the site from working. A beginner level webmaster trick.

It reminds me of when I did volunteer work, colored magazine quality Special Edition layouts and art work for a monthly black and white photocopy newsletter for the Utah State Office of the Consumer Council of county Consumer Advocates.
I handled the publication layout and art work, the printing office tweaking fixes and the State Consumer Advocate who oversees the county mental health representatives, she did the articles text editing and we did that part of the layouts together. She gave me access to the monthly meetings of the Consumer Council as long as she held the post of Utah State Mental Health Consumer Advocate in 1999- 2004. She succumbed to health issues from severe obesity and mental illness complications. She tried to send me to Washington DC for the yearly gathering of Consumer Advocates hoping I could distribute the newsletter, but they shot me down because I wasn’t officially in the council, just a bipolar ARMY Veteran volunteer with art and publishing skills. So typical of government. It would have been the greatest experiences to be rewarded for my skilled volunteer work but somebody saw the plane ticket to be worth more than my work for the council members who’s articles I added original art to that took months to get perfect. Typical also that it’s supposed to be a consumer watchdog office for The State Mental Health County Consumer Advocate Representatives, and their supposed to be a way for consumers to have one of their own for reporting grievances, missuses or abuse of patents by State Mental Health Employees to their higher ups at a state level. I believe after the State dealt with lawsuits on County Behavioral Health employees they may have got wise, and at a county level the Consumer Advocate is commonly some passive Behavioral Health Consumer Advocate that is thick as a brick and slow as a snail. Probably because county mental health offices appoint themselves a “safe” consumer advocate. Just sayen’ , but no proof of course.

Typical government reversal of the role by a sort of bait and switch tactical “cover your own ass first” then follow the law.

After Trump blew his temperamental ass tantrum on that Whitehouse reporter a few days back they obviously staged a couple of the questions at yesterday’s daily briefing on the pandemic. First a friendly question and answer with the reporter he had berated, then this ‘out of nowhere reporter’ never seen before asks POTUS basically the same question he blew up about. This time appearing in a different kind of family emotional perspective sounding very sincere, but designed to invoke an emotional response in the masses watching, and then the same perfectly worded response designed to endear the young and the family oriented. Trump only sounds that way when rehearsed. Even his typical memorized parts written for him and the contrasting colors of his improvised speech, and answers. His memorized answer was will above his intellect, and deigned to provoke a feeling in the world audience that makes him appear more repentant, humble and sorry for the outburst without ever mentioning the outburst that made him looks like the “I’m a rich holier-than-thou kind of asshole he can be at times. The staged reporter, he afterward had this “I hated to have to do that” and “what a jerk you are Donald.” emotionalism written all over his face. I will make some stills or video clips of it later on and update this post for you who want to see it for yourselves. (and proof the English errors I constantly make…

I know my loyal followers and liker’s will click… Thank you folk for taking a second to click a couple of links. Her stuff is wonderful and she deserves every click. She has filled my days with beautiful words, and I tried to pass that beauty on to you all and never knew it would attract so many poets with so many more beautiful words from you talented writers. In this time of world wide fear and upheaval these words that make us think of beauty, happiness and passions and help both the readers and the writers feel better by giving an outlets for the pent up stress we all are experiencing. You’ve all helped me express and cope better with all the current intensity in my life. Thank you all for your support. The strange synchronicity and the apocalyptic feeling everyone in our mountain valley got spun into by our earthquake just after they decided to class it a pandemic still has us all thinking,, whats next?? This year has been like that for everyone to some extent. The more we come together and support each other the better we cope with this intense time of of unrepresented change and potentiality of death. It’s the same for everyone, for someone we all know is at very high risk at this time and we have contemplated the loss.
Sorry for my bluntness.
Stay well and stay close to your higher power.

Don’t forget to vote for Gabriela. 👍❤
